Maryland will play Marshall (9-4) in the Military Bowl at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, the bowl's president announced on Sunday. It marks the first time the Terps will play in a bowl game since they appeared in the same game at a different venue in 2010. Maryland defeated East Carolina at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C., in Ralph Friedgen's last game as coach. That Maryland (7-5) was going to play in the Dec. 27 game less than an hour from its College Park campus had been speculated since the Terps became bowl-eligible with a road win over Virginina Tech on Nov. 16. There were still other possibilities, such as going to play in Shreveport, La., in the AdvoCare V100 Bowl.

COLLEGE PARK - There are too many bowl scenarios to determine for certain where Maryland will end up, but the school seems to have a willing suitor in the Military Bowl, which calls the Terps "a logical choice. " Another possibility for Maryland: the AdvoCare V100 Bowl, formerly the Independence Bowl. The bowl - to be played in Shreveport, La., on Dec. 31 - sent a scout to College Park for Maryland's game against Syracuse on Nov. 9. It is planning to send a representative to Saturday's Terps home game against Boston College to scout both teams, bowl spokesman Stefan Nolet said.

One week, it's Winnipeg's Matt Dunigan. Another night, Calgary's Doug Flutie.One maddening CFL quarterback after another. Scramblers. Throwers. Masters of improvisation.Then there's Shreveport's Terrence Jones, a player many rungs down the ladder. A player trying to get untracked last night after two earlier showings that ranged from average to downright ugly.Again, this wouldn't be his night to threaten the upper echelon. Rather than climb to new heights, the Baltimore CFLs' defense shoved him further.

Just a few shockers in tonight's episode. And that includes the wink-wink product placement for 1-800-DENTIST. WOAH, THAT OPENING: The best overall three minutes of this above-average episode were the first three. We're right back where we left off, at the now-ironically titled Festival of Tolerance. Total carnage and badass-ness. Eric goes after Bill, random vamps go after hapless humans (especially the one who screams, "We're on your side!"), Nan stabs a spellbound vamp in the neck.

Almost any bowl game looks appealing to a Maryland football team that remained on its chilly campus after last season while other Atlantic Coast Conference teams prepared for postseason games in enticing locations such as Miami and Orlando, Fla. But of course, there is appealing (for example, the Chick-fil-A Bowl in Atlanta, or the Champs Sports Bowl in Orlando) and then there is spectacular (the Orange Bowl in Miami). With three regular-season games left, many Maryland players and coaches can't help but glance at the list of bowl games and contemplate their possible December or January destinations.

SHREVEPORT, La. -- The Baltimore Stallions might have visited Independence Stadium for the final time last night.That's because the Shreveport Pirates, stung by a major drop in attendance and ticket revenue, are thinking about moving.Club president Lonie Glieberman, the son of owner Bernie Glieberman, told the Shreveport Times yesterday that the Pirates expect to lose $2.5 million this season, a year after the team suffered a $3.5 million loss in its first season. Before that, Glieberman lost $8 million over two seasons before selling the Ottawa Rough Riders.
